The Poetry Universe is a forum for poets and writers on Facebook, created in 2014. Members include experienced poets and beginning poets stepping into the poetry community. Our authors span the globe, and some poems are translated into English to reach a wider audience. One aspect of the forum is our “challenges”, which have become very popular. After several challenges specifically designed to create poetry for young readers, we devised the idea of publishing a book of children’s poems that would also delight parents. And thus,“Chimes And Rhymes For Grownups ” was born. Our poetry book is rich both in excellent poems and enthralling illustrations that children of all ages will adore. We sincerely hope you enjoy this book as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
